We love to see Mama Bears stepping up to the plate to defend their rights, especially when they make the brave decision to do so in Washington DC!
You may recall one Lauren Boebert, a gun-toting mama and small business owner from Colorado who confronted viruently anti-gun former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D) during his ill-fated presidential run last year at a campaign event.
“I was one of the gun-owning Americans that heard your speech and heard what you had to say, regarding, ‘Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15s and your AK-47s.’ Well, I am here to say, hell no, you’re not,” she told him amid a jeering crowd.
Those words “hell no, you’re not” echoed the thoughts of millions of law-abiding American gun owners who share her sentiment.
Well, this bold statement could be why she just one a Republican congressional primary in her state, an impressive victory that won a retweet and congratulations from President Donald Trump.
“I am a mother to 4 boys. My husband and I are raising them to be strong men! I refuse to send my children into a socialist nation. Their freedom IS my motivator! Threaten the liberty of Americans, and I’ll be there to hold you accountable!” Boebert wrote in the tweet that was shared by POTUS.
“Congratulations on a really great win!” Trump said.

Don’t you just love her?
President Donald Trump had previously tweeted out support for incumbent Republican Rep. Scott Tipton, won 45 percent of the vote compared with his challengers’s 55 percent.
Boebert, the owner of Shooters Grill in Rifle, CO where all the waitresses openly carry handguns, will face off against Democrat Diane Mitsch Bush in the November election.
“I’m excited and eager to take this fight on to the Democrats and represent the people of the 3rd Congressional District, just like I’ve been promising them I would,” Boebert said after the polls closed, The Denver Post reported.

In case you had any doubts of this fantastic lady’s dedication to defending what our nation truly stands for, her campaign website states it plainly.
“There is a battle for the heart and soul of our country that I intend on helping win,” she explains, according to Western Journal. “I’m running for Congress to stand up for our conservative values, address our current representatives’ failed promises, and put far-left Democrats back in their place.”
“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Squad and the rest of these left-wing lunatics are taking a wrecking ball to our country while our current representative stays utterly silent,” she says.
“Hard-working, patriotic Americans like you and me don’t want the Green New Deal and socialized medicine. Every time AOC and the rest of the Squad pipes up with another crazy idea, I will remind them that our belief in God, Country and Family are what built the United States of America into the greatest nation the world has ever known.”
WJ notes that she has also made her strong support for law enforcement in the context of current events known:
Every person wanting to defund the police should be required to be a cop for a day.

When given the choice, Americans will choose freedom & liberty every single time.
The media wants us to believe that we are the minority.
The American spirit is alive and well.
The world is watching.

In the viral interaction with O’Rourke which kicked off Boebert’s political career, she gave an impassioned defense for 2A-supporting women like herself.
“I would like to know how you intend to legislate evil. Because it is not the gun, it is the heart of the man that does that,” she said.
Boebert said gun confiscation would strip protection from “American citizens like myself, American mothers — I have four children, I am 5-feet-0, 100 pounds, cannot really defend myself with a fist.”
